Prayer Resources – Understanding

Knowledge is one thing, but unless we understand it, we can’t use it to make the world a better place. Understanding helps us take our knowledge and apply it to our lives.

Think this week about how you could be more understanding. How could you empathise and really understand what your friends are thinking or feeling? It often involves making an effort and really listening. How can you better understand the consequences of your decisions and actions this week?

It’s time for our “Word of the Week” watch the video above and check out for the notices at the bottom of the screen – don’t forget to leave your comments below!

Think about the things you find difficult to understand – what makes it difficult to understand new things and new people? Have a talk about how you can be more understanding.

Lord, help us to understand you and the world around us better. Amen

Understanding often requires seeing things from another point of view. Try and spend form time today doing something differently, by changing seats with each other – just for  a few minutes today! Watch this video from your new seat and try and think about how you can put yourselves in other peoples situations to understand them better.

Lord, help us to see things from a different point of view. Amen


We’re moving on to a new topic in our PSHCE this half term – ‘Taking care of yourself and others’ It’s about how we treat each others and how we treat ourselves. It’s going to look at all aspects of wellbeing for ourselves and those around us.

Today, use the Key Process of Numb3rs to discover the following statistic:

How may people aged 5-16 suffer from mental health issues according to recent studies carried out the Mental Health Foundation? (as a percentage)

Why do you think that is? What can be done? How can we understand it better?

Lord, help us to listen to take care of ourselves and others. Amen.

NEXT STEPSWe begin with the Sign of the Cross

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

John 20: 21

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father sent me, so I send you.”

What do you think God the Father sent Jesus to do? What do you think Jesus has sent you to do?

Lord, help us to listen to and follow your word. Amen.
